Nice stuff tenballer. That proof sheet is really cool. Rare to see for a regional issue. You are correct, the others in your picture are the 1995s.

I am trying to flush out the 1995 Standard and now the 1997 Bryan cards as well for McGriff. Also, looking for the AJC 8.5x11 cards for McGriff. I know Maddux, Glavine and Justice collectors looking for pretty much the same issues. I will add you to my list for Chipper if I ever run across them.

My current goal with my McGriff PC is to get all of the regional issues by the end of the year. The only problem is that he has 6 different regions. :D

Thanks, I'm always interested in more chipper stuff like this. I've got more minor league stuff, but not sure what McGriff is in. Let me know what you are after and I can see if I have it or know where some might be.

Do you have a photo of the 95 uncut?

I can't believe I've never seen this thread before. I love regional stuff. I have a ton of it in my chipper collection.

That's the first time i've any regional Braves proof material. Should I come across the 97 sheet, i'll let you know. BTW, do you have want list for your chipper pc?

At one point I had the whole sheet for the 1995 perforated. I no longer have that and I am not sure if I have a picture of it but I will check and see.

For McGriff's days in Atlanta, I am looking for

1995 Lykes Standard
1996 Atlanta Journal Constitution 8 1/2 x 11
1997 Atlanta Journal Constitution 8 1/2 x 11
1997 Bryan Perforated
1997 Bryan Standard

I do have a list, pm me your email and I can send it over. Thanks
I do 90s only and I think I need 100 or so cards and plates. That's based off of the Beckett checklist. Of course I know there's other cards not listed.

Ok thanks. I'll look back to see where I got my AJC Jumbos. I couldn't find them for the longest time then I came across a big stash. I bought all the Chippers I could.

Time to resurrect this thread. I haven't been able to make much headway on the McGriff Braves regional issues that I am still looking for. I know there are Maddux, Justice, Glavine and Chipper collectors looking for cards in these same issues so hopefully something will turn up for one of us.

I am still looking for the following McGriff cards. Any leads would be appreciated.

1995 Lykes Standard
1996 Atlanta Journal Constitution 8 1/2 x 11
1997 Atlanta Journal Constitution 8 1/2 x 11
1997 Bryan Perforated
1997 Bryan Standard

I will let you know if I come across Glavine in any of these issues. I know there are Justice, Chipper and Maddux collectors looking for these regionals as well. Oddly enough, I finally tracked down the 1995 Lykes Standard McGriff this week. That was the last card I needed in the Lykes run. Now, if I could just track down the 1997 Bryan issue I would have all of the Hot Dog cards.

1992 lykes Braves team photo set:
When Lykes meals was awarded the Braves hot dog contract for 1992 the continued the previous years baseball card promotions. Including this early May team photo/players card panels. three 9 1/2 by 10 1/2 panels feature a team photo and 30 player cards. The cards have player portraits against blue back round in a tombstone shape.A blue ball at the lower left has the players uniform number. while his name is in white in a red strip below the photo. red logos of the team and hot dog vender are at the bottom. Backs are printed in red and dark blue and feature full stats, player data and faceimile autograph. These cards are much more common than the Lykes singles distributed later in the season.

Fred McGriff (not in this set)

1992 Lykes Braves
Fred McGriff not in this set

1993 Lykes braves : Each Tuesday home game during the 1993 season 3 player cards were distributed to youngsters, sponsored by the teams hot dog vendor. this style of distribution makes collecting a complete 38-card set very difficult. The final Tuesdays handouts (Lopez, McGriff,and tarasco) have slightly different backs printing and are somewhat more scarcer than others
Fred McGriff $!.00

1994 Lykes Braves
Fred McGriff $6.00

1994 Lykes Breaves team photo set
Fred McGriff .25 cents

1995 Lykes Braves
Fred McGriff .25 cents

1995 Lykes braves team photo set
Fred McGriff .10 cents

1996 Lykes Braves team photo set
Fred McGriff .10 cents

Thanks! It was an interesting find. Buried in a collection for sale on Craigslist. The post had a listing for 1 1995 Braves Lykes in the collection but did not mention the player. I contacted the seller asking for more info and it turned out to be McGriff standard. He sold me the card outside of the collection. First time I have ever bought a card of Craigslist.

Wow, tough way to find it. Glad it worked out. I have never bought cards on there either.

Finally found the 1996 Atlanta Journal Constitution Jumbo 8 1/2 x 11. That finishes my AJC run. FF8157B8-FBEA-4DBF-AD37-341699BCA916.jpeg

The last Braves regional issue I need is the 1997 Bryan Hot Dogs Braves. If anyone has this card or any information about this release please let me know.
